I wanted to add to my assortment of rolled paper flowers but wanted a slightly different type of flower. I wanted the outer petals to be better aligned.

Quick Tutorial on How to Assemble Semi-Rolled Paper Flower
Step 1: Cut your template pieces.
Step 2: Glue the tabs together and curl the petals. I like curling some of the inner layer inwards while curling the outer layer outwards.
